from both the government and the opposition, the united states is taking the next up in normalizing our commercial relationship. >> the national football league has reached an agreement to end a labor dispute with the referees. the nfl rushed to make the deal after a botched call by replacement officials decided the outcome of a nationally televised game monday night, prompting widespread outrage from fans, journalists, and the teams. you can go to democracynow.org to see our interview with sportswriter dave zirin. in sweden, the 2012 right livelihood awards have been announced to four recipients. turkish environmental activist hayrettin karaca "for a lifetime of tireless advocacy and support for the protection and stewardship of our natural world." afghan women's activist -- a u.s. scholar gene sharp -- and to britain's campaign against arms trade -- handed out annually, the right glove awards are widely known as the alternative nobel prize. those are some of the headlines. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we begin our show with a l
economy. that is why he united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> woodruff: but iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, has long insisted that the country's nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes. and during his own speech yesterday, he denounced potential military action by israel. >> testing new generations of ultra-modern weaponry and the pledge to disclose these armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to coerce them into accepting a new era of hegemony. continued threats by the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> woodruff: earlier this week, iran unveiled a new long-range reconnaissance drone and the country's revolutionary guard said it tested new missiles as well. prime minister netanyahu noted that while international sanctions by the u.s. and other countries have hurt the iranian economy, they did not stop its nuclear program. >> there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs. a
communications they had. and if the united states state department and the country knew in advance of the attack that the ambassador felt like he was in danger of his death or imminent demise from al qaeda and we didn't take measures, that is aan appalling message to the ambassadors representing america. >> you requested them. can you subpoena the items? >> the committee can move forward and we talked to leadership of the committee. if they claim executive privilege and denies it, senator corcoran and i will pursue it. we think the american people, congress of the united states and the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> congressman, you have been in briefings about this. what do you make of the narrative that we have heard from administration officials about, well, it was linked to this video and it's still being investigated and we're not sure. now this reporting tonight and today that at least within the intelligence community in the first 24 hours they felt confident this was a terror attack? >> well, anderson, i don't think we can give this administration the be
, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in classified settings, but basically, we were told something that goes along with its consistent with what the administration was saying publicly an that was that was a upon tan yous mob, got out of hand and there wasn't consequences. doesn't make much sense if you look at common sense. the fact it was 9/11. the fact it was a highly organized attack. that's before you get into the evidence it just didn't really add up. >> i remember asking that night. people on our program. 9/11. it can't be
, the united states will stand along with our allies and put a time frame, a time limit on this and really force iranian compliance with the iaea regulations or the consequences would be really, detrimental for iran and the economy and perhaps take a military course. melissa: yeah, it feels like we're not having impact. that's why we're talking about all these things tonight. thank you very much ambassador, for coming on. >> thank you very much. melissa: hoards of demonstrators violently taking to the streets of greece and spain to protest new austerity measures. governments are trying to take one step forward to solve the continent's debt crisis but some citizens seemed determine to take two steps back. with the u.s. trying to solve its own looming debt crisis could we see this kind of turmoil break out here? steve moore from "the wall street journal" joins me with more on this. we watch these protests going on in the streets and the first thing on my mind is that it seems like things are getting worse instead of better across europe and i thought that we had sort of solved, at least part
? and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat. what does it say to you about al qaeda abilities in that region? >> first of all, with regards to benghazi, we responded to a request to provide a fast team to go into tripoli and provide additional security there, and we responded to that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and other security personnel that were there. the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli, and that is what we responded to. with regards to al qaeda and its efforts in that area, i think it is fair to say that al qaeda, you know,ontinues, as i indicated, to try to pursue its efforts in that part of the world. we have been going after them in yen in. we have been going after them in somalia. we have been going after them in north africa. -- we have been going after them in yemen. they continue to be a threat in those areas. again, they continue to operate in different ways as well in other parts of africa. as to s
what communications they had leing up to september 11th, and, if, in fact, the united states state department knew in advance of the attack this ambassador felt like he was in danger of death or imminent demise from action and we didn't take action to secure him, that sends an appalling message to ambassadors aren't the world representing united states. >> if you requested them, can the committee subpoena the items if you don't get them? >> they can move forward and we have talked with members of the committee and the leadership. if the administration claims executive privilege or looks the other way we will continue to pursue it. we think the american people, the congress of the united states and certainly the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> you have been in briefings about this, what do you make about the narrative that we have heard from officials well it was linked to this video and it is still being investigated and we are not sure and today within the intelligence community, within the first 24 hours, they felt confident this was a terrorist a
a reason for the president of the united states to lie to the american people? >> kimberly: no, there is not. in this particular situation it was glay grant. flagrant. if their lips are moving, they're lying. shameful behavior and weakened our position overseas internationally. people do not fear and respect the united states now because they know we will not act on it. we will instead do the 2012 apology tour. frankly, the american people are over it. it's outrageous that they lied. repeatedly over and over again. despite direct evidence to the contrary. >> eric: i want to get to you. i know you want to respond to that. andrea, immediately after, we said are they that dumb? do they think we're that dumb? what was it? they're that dumb, we're that dumb? >> andrea: they know the media won't cover them the way they'd cover republican president. but they haven't been forthcoming and they should be when it comes to terror. remember after september 11, rudy giuliani set up every day and told the truth. this tells me one or two things this year. either the president didn't do this jo
.n. the united states and israel have pledged to do what they must to prevent tehran from developing a nuclear weapon. >> continued threats by the uncivilized -- [indiscernible] -- to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> reporter: u.s. and israeli leaders chose not to attend mahmoud ahmadinejad's speech here at the u.n. in part because it occurred on rom kippur, one of the holiest days on the jewish calendar. demonstrators protested ahmadinejad's appearance. >> he again does not represent iran at all. >> reporter: iranian americans from across the country joined the protest. >> we send a message that the people of iran stand for democracy, human rights, nonnuclear iran. >> reporter: during his speech, ahmadinejad did not directly address his country's nuclear program, but he did y his nation was committed to peace. cbs news at the united nations. >>> at 4:36, here's a look at some other things making news now. extreme -- [indiscernible] -- is speaking out how he survived a weekend avalanche in the himalayans which killed at least eigh
to be realistic about how we can tackle these challenges. if there is a crisis that i see in the united states for the long term, it is not the temporal issue of how we will deal with money. because i am very confident we will be able to deal with that. it is how will we bring that -- bring back our sense of what we can accomplish together as americans when we are realistic about those challenges. that is the thing i think about the word "crisis" in this country. >> mayor castro is not the first to suggest that. for 10 years now, we heard that the government is not asking all of us to do enough. >> it is interesting. the word "sacrifice," when i hear a politician say that, it usually means grab your wallet. it usually means increasing taxes. and i will give president obama credit to in his the first presidential candidate since walter mondale to run explicitly on a platform that he will raise taxes. >> he is saying he will raise taxes on the wealthy. >> according to the supreme court, he already has raised taxes. that was the basis on which the supreme court of held obamacare, that it was a ta
've been talking this week about red lines that he doesn't want iran to cross before the united states would be involved in military action. i think he's going to lay out what his red lines are and to say to the world, listen, this is a crisis that the whole world has to deal with. i think this is seen as his final warning that if we done see movement on this issue, israel will have to act. >> i want to talk about the iranian president. i'll let you first eat a little crow. you made a prediction that was wrong. >> i thought -- i said yesterday on this show that i thought ahmadinejad would kind of go for broke, kamikaze in his last u.n. general assembly. instead, he talked about, you know, this new world order that he sees when the world powers would have less influence. but he wasn't as fiery. he didn't mention israel by name. i think a lot of people were surprised. in the statements he was saying leading up to this appearance he was much more fiery. i think in addition to ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general asking him to tone it down, i think maybe the supreme leader in iran said
year when abbas launched his bid for recognition of a palestinian state at the united nations. once it was obvious the attempt was doomed to failure, a sense of resignation took hold of the local people. we take a closer look now at life in the palestinian territories. >> bustling as always, but people here are losing hope. a minor economic upturn came and went, and the palestinian authorities -- authority's coffers are empty. >> there will be more protests soon. the situation has become intolerable. the palestinian government should do something for us. palestinians are weary and have no real opportunities. and the territories depend on international aid. their own economy is stifled by israeli sanctions, and there is little chance of growth. the lack of political progress frustrates palestinians. hopes were dashed last september when the united nations refused to give them full statehood. >> we are trying to bring hope that, trying to tell our people that the dream to have a palestinian state is still possible, and that is why we are going to the united nations. hopefully, once ou
a lot of the same problems that we have here in the united states. >> ifill: is there also a problem with coming to some sort of resolution as far as germany and other bank-- money-- money givers go? that somebody else is going to get in line. that if you give greece money, spain is going to be standing there. if you give spain money portugal could be standing there. >> there is this problem of political moral hazard going on which is really, as you say, well, if you give us, let's say, debt relief to greece, well, then you can be pretty sure that other european countries that also have received bailouts will want the same treatment. so what you're trying to do in europe, in minute, is really to-- i believe that ultimately debt relief will have-- further debt relief will have to be given to greece by the euro area governments. but they're really trying to make the road to that so arduous and so terrible that nobody else in europe will really want to go down that ute. an as we'r looking at greece today-- which has a cumulative decline in g.d.p. of, you know, close to 20% and still dro
these grants will be against israel and the united states. there were some side blows, but i would say for the state usually is in, he was kind of mild. he wants to establish a new world order that he is suggesting with all countries being equal, everybody living in peace and harmony -- that is at least what he said, but if you go into details, it does not make much sense. >> the egyptian president also took to the podium today, saying he opposes military intervention in syria. how was his speech received? >> it was very well-received, and it was a very well structured speech. it was a historic moment. first democratically elected civilian president of egypt speaking in front of the general assembly. he touched upon all the important topics, including syria, but what might have come as a surprise to some was that his most important topic is priority topic, was one that was more or less neglected this year as opposed to last year, which was the palestinian problem. he said that was the most pressing problem in the world. criticized israel without mentioning it, that they oppose the foun
here in the united states? we've got similar issues, don't we? we have an e more nor we? we have an e more nomous debt l and the debate on what to cut. >> there's always a question of priorities and where you focus your attention. i think the president has made a major effort to reduce the budget deficit and also to invest in the future of the country, just like a corporation in many senses that has too much debt, that it has to put its debt in line with its ability to raise revenues. it also has to invest in its future. the president, i think, is investing in education, infrastructure, many things that will make the country stronger. that's really the goal. it's to have a sound budget policy but also invest in the country's future. i think that's what the president's trying to do. >> but bob, we haven't had a budget in three years. >> well, a lot of programs that he's proposed have not gotten through the congress. that's a big challenge. he's focused on education. he has a very significant proposal on infrastructure development. these are the kind of things that are needed to make us
a stake in and it's tesla here in the united states. they're coming out and saying that they're developing plans, they'll have to slow things down, not going as quickly as originally thought. any concerns about the demand in the future for the electric car given your investment in tesla? >> i think the oem is never in a hype mode as some of the media was as far as electric cars are concerned. this transition will happen. it's a long transition. we're very very beginning. we'll see customers, but of course so far it's a niche and will take time to develop. we will continue to pioneer this market and in 10 or 20 year, electric cars will play a significant role. >> doctor, thank you for joining us live from the paris auto show. joe, becky, andrew, it does not lk like there's a bottom. we're hearing from ceos and they are not seeing a bottom yet. are you looking out at 2015, 2016 before the auto industry can say, okay, at least we see a base here. >> bad news add to go a pile of bad news we've heard recently. phil, thank you very much. and we do want to have you back here soon to talk to us mo
. but here in the united states, with respect to the rally, i'm getting a large number of questions. we're getting a large number of questions about whether or not the stimulus boost from federal reserve easing is what it used to be, so to speak. i would remind people take a look at the last couple of instances, we've had similar measures. we've had similar instances of people wondering whether the fed was -- if i had $1 for every time we talked about the fed being out of bullets, i'd have lots of dollars. and we're going through that again. >> they would all be worth less. >> the previous dollar, yes. >> less than maybe ten years ago. not necessarily less than five years ago. >> shame on you for that populist comment there that you should be cutting taxes in europe. at what point do you think the spanish are going to cut taxes given the situation that they're in? shame on you for appealing to your republican base in such a shameless way. >> btig's clients would be interested to know that i had a republican base, but listen. at the end of the day, there isn't a sort of a one-size-fits-a
their friends in southern europe and indeed the economy here in the united states. michelle caruso-cabrera will talk about some of the bad pigs in a minute, but first senior economics reporter steve liesman with the story of some vindicated doves. >> because the new game is called "bad piggies." that's where we're coming from. >> and we're only doing this because the producer jason gawertz made us do this. he said could we think of an app that would apply with today's data and i did. it's called vindicated doves. at least initially here, why is that? because essentially the economic data came in weak. let me show you what the economic data showed. the numbers come in you're looking for 5.6% positive -- or negative. you get minus 13.2 off a prior 3.27%. i think the dove says i don't care i had this one right. gdp took .4 off the prior print right there. midwest manufacturing down negative. p and pending home sales much changed from the prior month from positive to negative. take a look at some of the comments here. vindicated doves. anyone facing doubt about the need forred 23ed's r
, the ability to grab market share. it has continued to see its market share erode down to 10% in the united states now compared to google and apple which have been growing their share. >> well, there is positives in the results and it was nice to see the total subscriber base grow to that 80 million it is important to remember that the company still saw revenue decline by 31% on a year-over-year basis. the number of units that were shipped, that 7.4 million for the entire quarter that compared to the 5 million apple sold and on its first weekend of sales are for thix phone 5. so this is a company that has-losing share, people view the platform as being behind the curve technologically and they still have a lot of ground to cover to catch up. >> does it have any price pog we are when it comes to its new device the blackberry -- in other words, it may not make it up on volume but can it continue to see margins and perhaps even increase margins within the company posted a loss this quarter and the expectations are they are going to post a loss in the next your as well. so they are not driving
as the potential vice president of the united states or nominee ar fore party for vice president. neil: to what end? mitt romney wants to win. >> i will say, two things, this so concerning this to the ryan -- romney-ryan campaign. and is this gets to the way the ryan campaign staff thinks they will win, they are running a hesitant, tentative campaign, they think that is the best way to do it that has been the mo from day one with this president. i am not a political guy, i can just tell you what people are saying. people that gave them a lot of money, and do not want to see 4 more years of president obama, worried it is way too hesitant, too tentative, and they are criticizing it for what they believe is muzzling one of their best weapons. neil: do they worry, the rich guys in party, pushing for this guy to lead the nation, this guy is still trying to calm up cash? >> they think that -- this is another thing, he spending more money, and ryan is spending a lot of money, more time and ryan spenspending time, raising mone, not doing what needs to be done. neil: but then they would not have money for t

about the housing market in the united states, but economic protests in greece and concerns about spain drove stock prices down. >>> dozens of miniature horses facing eviction. the ultimatum given today >>> the man suspected of poisoning his girlfriend in a nursing home is defending himself, and the liquid supplement he gave her. >> i drink it all the time, of course. >> reporter: we found the 67- year-old free. no charges filed. >> it's happened, i canaled undue it. we can all try to creek it. there's the upside is, the positive publicity. >> reporter: publicity, he says for the miracle mineral supplement, which he swears by. >> it's just a mineral. >> reporter: which is why he brought a supply to the nursing home, where his long time girlfriend, recovering from surgery drank it for weeks. >> certainly, i didn't intend any harm, and further more vicky was actively participating in this process. >> reporter: police were told it had as much chlorine as a swimming pool. lockridge became a poisoning suspect. >> this is not chlorine. this is chlorine dioxide. >> reporter: it's used in water
it to the united states unbelievably rapidly. so they can argue about currency and outsourcing, but the u.s. is the beneficiary right now. >> they're selling the wrong story. meanwhile protesters gathering in madrid, calling for the spanish government to resign. are a hoig's reforms have proved deeply unpopular. steve, what are we going to get today and what do we get tomorrow when we hear about how much more money the banks need? >> very interesting. i've already spoken to the economy ministry about the financial assessment of the banks. they pretty much have a credit line of 100 billion euros. that money is waiting really although the conditionality has been questioned after some of the northern europeans, just questioning what the money will be used for and indeed where it goes to specifically. but in terms of the budget today, cuts across the papers. whether 4% at the justice ministry, 30% agriculture, public works. the rajoy is trying to play a catty game. he's trying to reempty the conditionality that may welcome with an official call for a bailout of the sovereign. because he knows
, when should united nations or member states intervene? >> well, these are different situations. in libya, i think we've been right in intervening because gaddafi was a dictator, and you remember that there was a sort of libyan spring, and nobody was possible because of gaddafi. therefore, a decision was taken to intervene. >> rose: is the principle you don't intervene no matter how atroacials the acts of the government in power, if in fact they have a member of the security council who opposes? or if in fact they have an army which will make it a very bloody affair. >> no. >> rose: are those the rules? >> no. the rule is because of veto if one or two people-- nations -- permanent security members-- we cannot contribute because our principle is to intervene only if we have a legal authorization. and up to now, three times, russia and china say no. and, therefore, up to now, we haven't been able to intervene. which is a humanitarian catastrophe. because every day you have more than 200 people killed. and because the security council doesn't say yes, we can't do anything. no, it's
